Zany One of a Kind Cheery Lynn Designs Card

10 Feb
The reason I have called this a One of a Kind card is that if I tried to recreate it exactly like this, I couldn’t.
While at CHA this year, with Cheery Lynn Designs, we were across from a company that had all these fantastic ideas that I wanted to try!  So, sorry gals, you are my guinea pigs, so to speak.
I am trying my ideas out here!
I created this card from the die called Folding Fan.
Behind the fan I have pleated the paper that the fan sits on.  I was able to do this very easily using the
Easi Score from Diamond Card Craft.  It comes with an idea book and pleating the paper was one of the ideas in the book.
I have tried to take a picture in full sun to show off the pleats.
I am using Authentique Paper’s Splendid line.  I thought it was perfect for the overall feeling I was trying to create.
I used each fan piece as it’s own canvas and drew a different design on each panel.
On the inside I used lots of fun things, starting with the Embossing Plate I used on the blue paper called Black Eyed Susans. I love using paper with white core, it just looks so lovely when it is sanded.
I also used the Lace Edger and the Zig Zag Ric Rac dies. The small fan on the inside I made with a small Scalloped Circle.
I love the layers and dimension on this, I hope you have enjoyed this too.
I wanted to make sure you knew about our current challenge.
Our theme right now is Red & White.
You can read all the details HERE.
Every week there is a new winner and that winner gets a $20.00 gift cert. to Cheery Lynn Designs, so be sure to join in!
Thanks for the visit today, this has been Jeannie from The Polka Cabana with today’s post.

Sweet Stamps Tuesday!!

10 Jan

Starting today on the Sweet Stamps blog, we have another new challenge for you!

HEARTS

What an EASY PEASY challenge!  You have to play along.

My first thought was the title from a song in Les Miserables, A Heart Full of Love.

I could visualize what I wanted to do, and this is how it turned out.

Here it is with a dark background. I hope it is obvious this is a shaker card and I have filled the shaker with glitters and glass beads.

I used the gorgeous Forget Me Not Heart from Sweet Stamps.   Other supplies I used are Cheery Lynn Designs dies:  Heartland America,  Black Eyes Susans Embossing Plate.

I used the Heartland America die with the Embossing Pads so it would emboss my paper instead of cut it,

My embossed green background paper is from the Authentique Paper Splendid 6 x 6 pad.

Criss-Cross Card…Have you made one?

27 Sep

 

I saw this card pattern awhile ago and really wanted to try it.

I was very excited when I saw that our challenge this week was for this type of card!

For this Criss Cross card, I used this tutorial.

http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/resources/tutorials/criss_cross_card/

I was amazed at how easy it was to make.

For this card I used the following Sweet Stamps:

Triple Tulips

Friend

My paper is from Authentique Paper. I am convinced they might be the best paper company ever!  Be sure to see my tutorial HERE as to why I think this and HOW I made my paper border.

Splendid

Uncommon

Have you ever just pierced your paper for a nice effect?

Pierce the holes and put some dimensional foam between the pierced paper and the layer underneath to show off the piercing.

Here is the card all put back together with the insert slightly lifted out, so you can see how this card works.

I encourage you to join our challenge here:
